Festival of the Earth


FESTIVAL OF THE EARTH


The Festival of the Earth is a significant programme of events, activities, workshops and more, taking place across the district, led by Wakefield Council in the summer of 2021


Several creatives received Creative Challenge grants to create work, and to support projects to happen across the district and online in relation to the festival.
